Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • k2tog
  • ssk
  • central double decrease
  • cast on and bind off

Pattern Description:

This shawlette is triangular and knit from the top down, using a single skein of sock yarn.

The diamond patterns start off simply and "refract" towards the edging, becoming a little bit more challenging, but it is still easily read as it is being created.

The lace is knit on the right side only.

It should be noted that some testers ran out of yarn, so be very sure of your gauge, if you are loose knitter, I recommend dropping a needle size.

One knitter added an extra repeat of Chart B to get a larger shawl, which used 484 yards of sock yarn.


24 sts per 4" (row gauge is not important)

You Will Also Need:

  • 3.5mm needles
  • stitch markers
  • large eyed sewing needle (for weaving in ends)
  • pins for blocking

Suggested yarn:

440 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Fyberspates Scrumptious Sock
